Changes in life style l.jpg
Changes in life style Services

“the phone is my life”


Current usage sms l.jpg
Current usage - SMS Services

“I don’t want to talk for hours”

  • Despite labour intensiveness - especially valued by young (UK 30% text freaks)

    • Comparatively low cost

    • Little human protocol overhead

    • Conversation multiplexing

    • Works in noisy and ‘quiet’ places

    • Storage

  • Disappointment about current push services: non-meaningful, untimely, duplicates, billing


Non traditional uses l.jpg
‘Non-traditional’ uses Services

  • Gaming

  • Listening to radio

  • Organising

  • Multimedia messaging

  • Internet access


Current usage on public transport l.jpg
Current usage on public transport Services

  • Typical use: Voice calls, SMS, gaming, radio

  • Many avoid its usage in public transport (53% of the Greek)

    • etiquette and privacy concerns

  • More are annoyed with other people using it in public


Criteria for provider selection switching l.jpg
Criteria for provider selection, switching Services

  • Cheaper service

  • Better service(s) – e.g. free nights and weekend calls

  • Coverage

  • Social circles

  • Handsets

  • Problem of porting number is major reason against switch



News and weather l.jpg
News and weather Services

“when you hear about the bombings you want to know right away what’s going on”

  • Most appealing content: timely + short = being mobile + dead time

  • Short delay requirements

  • Abroad coverage valuable (staying in touch)

  • Choice is important

  • Traffic news are sought

  • Weather not as important

    Anticipated problems:

    • Cost “Not worth checking the weather for 50p”


Disaster management l.jpg

“I won't get messages about disasters all the time so in the mean time traffic info would be helpful”

Disaster management

  • #1 for Greek participants (earthquakes, fires)

  • 1st hand broadcast information, phones are ON

  • Huge interest in the inherent traffic reports

    Anticipated problems:

    • Frequency of alerts (desensitization/anxiety)

    • Big brother – ‘they know where you are’

    • Hijacked or jammed systems

    • Cost – “it can’t be that certain people can’t afford it”


Live events l.jpg
Live (Events) the mean time traffic info would be helpful”

“I think that would be good - but if it's too expensive then I wouldn't use it”

  • News

  • Soccer (live, and results!)

  • Sports (cricket, F1, tennis, olympics, skiing, etc,)

  • Weather

  • Stock quotes

  • Concerts (good sound required)

  • Live TV

    Anticipated problems:

    • Cost (pay-per-view)

    • Screen size

    • Missing atmosphere (group experience)


Music tv radio l.jpg
Music TV / radio the mean time traffic info would be helpful”

“I would be quite happy with radio … I like listening more than watching”

  • Phone convergence with radio

  • Transfer capability to/from PC

  • Forwarding to friends

  • Convergence with MP3-players (battery life!)

  • Regular (daily update) must be better than current TV or radio in terms of customization (personal taste)

“..cause it's another step in entertainment - and then music and the video is the next step and then there will be something else“


Slide18 l.jpg

Language courses the mean time traffic info would be helpful”

“for those ten minutes you're on the bus, plug it in and listen to this is how you say I'm going to the restaurant‘ “

  • Appealing especially to non-native speakers

  • Desires for dictionary and/or live translator (audible)

  • Supplement to courses in general not only for missed classes

  • Also for lectures, cooking, how-tos, documents etc.


Slide19 l.jpg
PVR the mean time traffic info would be helpful”

“anything longer than 10 minutes – I don’t think people would do it outside of home"

  • For long commuters and travellers

  • Seen as mobile remote control & TV guide

  • Keep & forward

  • Personalisation

    Anticipated problems:

  • Complex UI

  • Small screen (missing cues in content)

  • Gathering marketing data (France)


Slide20 l.jpg

Dating the mean time traffic info would be helpful”

“I wouldn't do it but I know a lot of people who would –

a lot of people would do anything to meet other people.”

  • No one would use it personally but knows lots of people who would

  • could be coupled with chat (keyboard)

  • Better control for children than on the computer

    Anticipated problems:

  • Reputation

“What kind of person are you if you're dating on the tube? Everyone would see that you're looking for someone”


Slide21 l.jpg

Conclusions the mean time traffic info would be helpful”

Mobile multimedia consumption

  • Generally interested – should match with improvements in coverage

  • Inexpensive

  • Content should be short

  • News fits best

  • Live sport not as popular => social consumption

  • Music for younger => radio ++

  • Should not interfere with communication needse.g. battery life, content consumption
